• Brazilian growers to gain increased competitiveness and productivity
• Further strengthens Syngenta portfolio in Brazilian market

Syngenta announced that its genetically modified corn traits MIR162 and Bt11xGA21 are now fully approved for cultivation in Brazil. This follows the approval by the National Biosafety Committee and the thirty day clearance period. The approval of these advanced technologies will offer Brazilian growers increased productivity, higher grain quality and reduced production costs.

"These approvals reinforce Syngenta’s leading position in technology and innovation, strengthen our portfolio of solutions and will enable Brazilian growers to increase their efficiency and global competitiveness, said Davor Pisk, Chief Operating Officer Seeds.

The efficacy and broad spectrum of MIR162 make it the most advanced technology available today to control the fall army worm, the main insect threat to corn in Brazil. The stacked corn trait Bt11xGA21 offers higher value and convenience for growers through combined insect resistance and herbicide tolerance.
